NYS: Caregivers in Crisis
The just released joint report, Caregivers in Crisis: Why NYS Must Act, warns that New York will pay the price if it doesn't act to support the state's millions of family caregivers. New York state is already at the bottom of the barrel in providing needed supports for 4.1 million unpaid caregivers. The report says that a looming demographic shift will mean fewer people able to provide care - valued at $32 billion annually.
The report, the culmination of 12 listening sessions around the state with more than 900 caregivers and service providers, highlights the needs and makes specific policy recommendations.
The listening tour and the report were the joint work of AARP, NYSCRC, and the Council of Senior Centers and Services of New York City, Inc. Read the full report here.
